If you want to study systems engineering at Sheffied but you don’t have the right A Levels, this is the most direct route. The foundation year includes modules in chemistry, maths and physics. Complete it to the required standard and you’re guaranteed a place on the degree course. The BEng is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institute of Measurement and Control. It gives you a grounding in the control of advanced engineering systems. You will also learn how that knowledge can be applied to complex systems such as biological processes and the environment. And you’ll take part in the faculty’s Global Engineering Challenge, a team exercise designed to make you a better engineer. Sheffield is the only university in the UK with a whole department dedicated to control and systems engineering. Rolls-Royce have opened a technology centre here. And we have research contracts with major organisations such as the European Space Agency. Our facilities include a robotics lab and a new (2015) control and electronics lab. Systems and control engineers can build robots and design manufacturing processes. They can even help to predict climate change and financial trends. So graduates are in demand. Ours work for companies including Rolls-Royce, Jaguar Land Rover, Shell and HSBC.
